The Future of Satellite and the Cloud

Create an Unparalleled Customer Experience

Whether you’re managing and delivering video content or extending your network’s reach around the globe, your ability to delight your customers with the best user experience increasingly depends on how you use and connect to the cloud. Undeniably, your customers’ most essential content, services, and applications are migrating to the cloud at a rapid, sustained pace.

Delivering an exceptional customer experience in cloud services is a transformational opportunity. In the video world, the cloud plays an integral role in managing and delivering broadcast-grade, quality programming with shorter lead times. For telcos, enterprises, and government organisations, connectivity must be cloud-optimised to ensure customer satisfaction, and improve operational agility.

The Ecosystem Enables the Experience

Creating and delivering differentiated, cloud-driven content and connectivity services takes an ecosystem of partners, each playing a critical role in helping you maximise the customer experience. At SES, we have built a robust, global partner ecosystem spanning hyper-scale cloud service providers, top-tier network interconnection partners, and best-of-breed technology suppliers. This enables you to deliver turnkey content and connectivity services reliably, simply, and at scale.

We innovate within this ecosystem to co-create services with you—cloud-enabled services designed to accelerate your digital transformation, extend your global reach seamlessly, and build a cloud-driven business primed for long-term success.

Here’s how we will help you achieve more with the cloud:

  • As a Microsoft Azure Orbital Founding Connectivity Partner, we’re co-locating O3b mPOWER ground systems in Azure data centres, enabling “one-hop” connectivity from any global end-point to Azure applications.
  • We’re the MEO satellite connectivity partner for Microsoft’s new Modular Data Centres, providing high-performance, low-latency connectivity from these ruggedised, secure, self-contained remote data centres to the Azure cloud.
  • We’ve built cloud native video solutions that allow for the full management of linear TV channels, online video platforms, and workflow management via our cloud partner ecosystem.
